Ancient Roots and Bright Future

With a varied landscape as diverse as its inhabitants, Albania is home to miles of unspoiled and uncrowded Adriatic and Ionian Sea coastline, rugged mountains dotted with isolated villages, and the countless cultural remnants of Greek, Roman, and Ottoman settlement. With its improved highways, expanded airport with increased flight capacity, and emerging digital infrastructure, Albania continues breaking out of its long, 50-year isolation under Communist rule.

Traveler Reviews

  • "Our [favorite part of trip] possibly was Albania; beforehand we knew so little about that country. The guide was excellent and very personable – as were others – and willingly answered all our questions. He even introduced us to big fresh figs right off the tree."
